Practicing Moral Humility
Re: Nitin Nohria
Whenever we see examples of ethical or moral failure, our knee-jerk reaction is to say "that was a bad person". We like to sort the world into good people who have stable and enduringly strong, positive characters, and bad people who have weak or frail characters. So why then do seemingly good people behave badly? Nitin Nohria, Dean of Harvard Business School explores the moral overconfidence so prevalent in society and exhorts us all to practice moral humility.
